COD: Ghosts will use new engine

Written by David Stellmack

No release for Wii U confirmed as of yet

Activision has confirmed the next Call of Duty title will be called Call of Duty: Ghosts. This will be an Infinity Ward-developed title that will be arriving at retail on November 5th in North America. (Although not confirmed, we suspect Europe will get it on November 8th.)

Ghosts has been confirmed for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and on both Microsoft’s and Sony’s Next Generation consoles. Despite suggestions from sources, at this time it would seem there is no plan for a Wii U release, but you never know if that will change by the time we reach E3.

The biggest news is that Ghosts will be powered by an all new next generation engine. Details are sketchy as to if Infinity Ward is using a new in-house developed engine or something else. This is the first COD title to use an all new engine. The original COD engine was introduced in 2005 and has undergone many upgrades and tweaks to get where it is today; but obviously it was time to use something new with the release of the new next generation consoles.

Besides the released trailer, we know very little about Ghosts; but Activision promises to bring everyone into the loop when they show off the new engine on May 21st at Microsoft’s press conference for its new next generation system. They will continue telling us more about Ghosts at E3 in June.
